The final day of our mission trip to the far-west began with excitement and full of energy. Continuing with our mission trip for the next 5-6 hours led us to another rural village where our mission field leader Ps. P, his family, and many believers were waiting for us. We were delighted to meet them again after so many years. However, even amid lockdown and those years we weren’t able to visit them, we were always in communication and regular prayer with them. The meeting made us remember our past days of ministering together. We all were in tears greeting each other. It was a sweet moment to be in. Praises to the Lord!
As it was the last day in the mission field, we wanted to take the full benefit of coming so far to do the ministry, so in the evening, we went to meet some believers nearby, sat with them, talked with them, and did a fellowship together.
Later our team were able to wash up at the well that was constructed by RHMI many years ago. We were very happy to see the proper utilization and maintenance of the well. We were glad to meet many villagers coming to take the water from the well. One of the non-Christian villagers, Ms. Rana told us, “RHMI has done a big favor for us through this well. It has become easier for us to take the water from the well now, we don’t have to travel far for water. Thank you very much, Pastor.” Hallelujah! A non-Christian was praising the deeds of the Christ-followers.
The next morning, our team woke up early and spent personal prayer time with God. Within a few hours, believers started gathering in the church. Because of the sensitivity of COVID-19 issues, we gave out surgical masks to each attendee and made them aware of its importance and proper disposal. We believe God has given us the wisdom to be proactive with regard to health for ourselves.
God was totally in the move. The conference had the presence of His marvelous provision and plans. Many believers were touched by the different, powerful messages that motivated them to remain constant in faith in the Lord. The teachings about the benefit of rejoicing in the Lord and taking rest in His secret place lifted confidence in the believers. People were repenting, thanking God for the beautiful life, and praising His greatness in everything. What a thrilling moment it was to pray along with them and get lost in His mighty presence. Mr. Rana share with us, “I could sense a huge white cloak covering our Church. Jesus was standing in front of the pulpit and comforting all of us.”
We felt humbled to intercede for them and pray over them. In the supreme presence of the Holy Spirit, believers were filled with joy and blessings. Thank you, partners. Your love and support helped us become the channel of blessing to those beautiful children of God.
After the conference, we distributed chocolates for the kids, sanitary napkins for ladies, and ten mini radio speakers to our mission field leaders. Everyone was enjoying the gifts and thanked us with their big hearts. Such humanitarian aids have had a real impact on the work of RHMI with regards to the sensitive issues brought on by COVID-19.
Chocolates for the kids brought smiles to their faces. It was just another way of showing them that they are the true heirs of God’s kingdom. We enjoy talking with them and feel their faith in Christ. We pray that these children will turn out to be great missionaries in the provision and plan of God.
Also, mini radio speakers were given to ten mission field leaders to help them in their evangelism work. The speakers play powerful lessons while the field leaders are working, doing fellowships, and sharing the Gospel. The lessons and worship songs uplift believers and help them to remain positive during the turmoil and terrible situations they face. Thank you partners for such a handy, durable, and portable gift. Mr. Shaut promised us, “Pastor, I am going to gather all my relatives and make them hear the teachings inside this radio. I will utilize this gift for my Lord and do my best to follow according to the teachings.
The gift of sanitary napkins was a big surprise to the sisters. Due to the lockdown, those pads were unavailable and expensive if found in their locality, which forced them to use unhygienic methods. Ms. Chaudhary thanked us, saying, “It was such an important material for most of our ladies who were struggling in their menstruation period. Thank you, Pastors, for your kindness. It was such a timely supply. We never expected this.” Hallelujah! All thanks and appreciation to our beloved partners for their love for our land.

Dear partner, thank you very much for everything. Your support and sacrificial giving have a great impact among our believers. Without your support, this mission trip would have never been successful.
